Spend it on Mars, not the moon.
The article posted in the original post said they planned on going to the moon to build a base for future trips to Mars. Here is the quote:

In January 2004, President George W. Bush announced plans for the United States to return to the moon by 2020 and build a way station there for flights to Mars. NASA's last human flight to the moon was in 1972.
